Webinar

Here is the list of past webinars:

Giovedì 29 Ottobre 2020

Ore 15.00 - 16.30

 

Il webinar offrirà una panoramica sulle prospettive che si stanno delineando a livello italiano ed europeo per le istituzioni della formazione superiore su:

 

  • l’utilizzo delle digital credentials, e la digitalizzazione dei titoli di studio e della documentazione accademica;
  • la flessibilizzazione e la modularità della formazione, sia in ambito formale che non formale, con lo sviluppo e la diffusione di corsi brevi, per l’acquisizione di competenze orientate al mercato del lavoro (c.d. microcredentials).

  

Si tratta di temi sempre più importanti per garantire l’accesso e la mobilità al mondo della formazione superiore e nel mercato del lavoro, anche alla luce dell’accelerazione delle attività a distanza in risposta alla pandemia da Covid19. I relatori presenteranno le tendenze e gli scenari emergenti a livello europeo e nazionale.

In questa occasione verranno inoltre illustrati i risultati di uno studio di benchmark internazionale sulle pratiche di utilizzo delle credenziali digitali svolto nell’ambito del progetto "Analisi per il contrasto delle falsificazioni dei titoli e il rafforzamento della mobilità di ricercatori e studenti" finanziato a valere sul Programma Operativo Nazionale “Ricerca e l'Innovazione” 2014 - 2020 del Ministero dell'Università e della Ricerca.

In conclusione, il webinar illustrerà le prospettive e le sfide per le istituzioni della formazione superiore e non, in termini di microcredentials, digitalizzazione e riconoscimento, nell’ambito più ampio della terza missione dell’università.

Agenda        

Invitation


Objective:

To share practical tools and methodological precepts to strengthen the ability to provide transparent information in line with what is required by the Lisbon Convention on the recognition of qualifications, and also to support the different players involved in recognition processes in facing the challenges posed by the COVID-19 emergency.

 

Content:

Providing adequate, precise and updated information on recognition is one of the central themes of the Lisbon Convention on the recognition of qualifications. The ability to convey information in a transparent and accurate way on the study courses offered and on the qualifications issued is also an essential element to provide students and those who, in various capacities, are involved in the process of recognition of qualifications, the necessary elements to understand the new scenarios that are developing in the context of the COVID-19 emergency.

 

In order for the quantity and quality of information to be circulated to allow the international qualifications recognition system to function efficiently and effectively, it is necessary to have an updated picture of how the different players are working to ensure the dissemination of information in line with the Lisbon Convention and in light of the new challenges posed by the pandemic, but also to understand the best use of the tools and language of digital communication online and through social media.

 

The seminar, thanks to the presence of experts on the subject from different sectors involved in the issue of recognition of qualifications and information provision, provides moments of elaboration and discussion on the importance of information on recognition for higher education institutions and on how to use different communication tools for the evaluation of qualifications.

 

In addition, the institutions present will have the opportunity to exchange ideas on the topic of how to offer information on recognition, both in the admission and in the award of qualifications phases, and will share their input for the creation of a Vademecum of higher education institutions to provide relevant, accurate and updated information.

 

To further deepen the issues addressed, material for practical exercises on social media and a map of the main resources and sources of information at international level on the effects of COVID-19 on higher education and on the recognition of qualifications will be shared with the participants after the seminar.

  

Who should participate: 

The seminar is free of charge and open to all those involved in the recognition of qualifications, and in particular to staff from higher education institutions, staff from ENIC-NARIC centres, and experts of the Bologna process. The working language is English.

  

Agenda: 

The first part of the seminar will be dedicated to the presentation of the role of higher education institutions in offering relevant, accurate and updated information within the framework of the Lisbon Convention and in the light of the COVID-19 emergency. The topic will be addressed “collectively”: experts in the subject matter from different sectors will exchange views to illustrate different perspectives on the topic.

 

Discussion on the role of information both during admission to courses and the award of qualifications will follow. Both sessions include moments of comparison to answer questions and collect input from participants. The aim is to improve the ability to communicate through websites and social networks and to jointly define a vademecum for higher education institutions.   

  

Registration: 

To participate in the seminar, it is necessary to complete the registration form available at the following link: https://forms.gle/TEYviTWmvJ6WRMeT9 by June 12th, 2020.

Monday, 8th June, 2020

Time: 15.00 - 16.30

  

The webinar will offer an overview of good practices at Italian and European level for the recognition of refugee qualifications and practical tools for evaluating qualifications, even in the event of scarce or non-existent documentation.

  

On this occasion, the EQPR (European Qualifications Passport for Refugees) project, its implementation in Italy and the case of the CNVQR (National Coordination for the Evaluation of Refugee Qualifications) will be presented. A document will also be presented: “Evaluation of refugee qualifications. A technical - methodological document for higher education institutions” as a resource to support the recognition of qualifications from countries in crisis situations, as well as country snapshots on “Afghanistan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Somalia and Venezuela”. These documents have been produced within the project “Analysis for combatting the falsification of qualifications and strengthening the mobility of researchers and students” financed under the National Operational Program “Research and Innovation” 2014 - 2020 of the Ministry of University and Research.

The outbreak of COVID-19 is having a huge impact on education, higher education and recognition. The temporary closure of educational institutions due to the COVID-19 pandemic is leading to changes in qualifications, including examinations at the end of upper secondary school, which is some cases were modified by mode of delivery, postponed, or were cancelled. These changes sometimes lead to a qualification that could be based on average marks of previous learning, or no final qualification at all. This poses several issues for access to higher education, both in terms of assessment procedures and access requirements, and in terms of equality of treatment of students, fair recognition and ensuring the right to education. Recognition of disrupted learning is a crucial turning point for higher education systems and further information sharing is essential.

 

With a view towards the internationalisation and fair recognition of qualifications, the impact of the pandemic will be long-lasting, including on cross-border mobility. Going forward it is important that we shift attention to post-pandemic planning to ensure the highest degree possible of quality and fairness in the recognition process, as well as the continued support to internationalisation and recognition of qualifications granted during the current emergency period based on authoritative information sharing in Europe, Asia-Pacific and worldwide. The discussion of these issues at regional level in the framework of the RecoASIA project is aimed at supporting the current and future dialogue of regional and interregional cooperation in the field of recognition. The RecoASIA project aims at favouring and increasing the quality of vertical and horizontal mobility within the Asian and European higher education systems by increasing the recognition of qualifications within the two regions.

 

Join an interactive webinar to explore emerging challenges and new futures of higher education, including recognition practices from Europe and the Asia-Pacific featuring speakers from:

 

Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia,

Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam.

 

This special event is co-organized by UNESCO’s Asia-Pacific Regional Bureau for Education in collaboration with CIMEA, in the framework of the RecoASIA project.

Monday, 25th May, 2020

Time: 15.00 – 16.30

  

The webinar will offer an overview of the digital tools available to higher education institutions, with a focus on currently existing solutions for the release and sharing of digital credentials and digital records, and on online resources for verifying the authenticity of a foreign qualification.

  

The pandemic has underlined the need to deploy digital solutions that can guarantee the right to the recognition of qualifications at any time and greater flexibility in the procedures for issuing and sharing academic documents, as well as possibility the possibility of the verification of Italian qualifications abroad for the benefit of our graduates. On this occasion, the case study of CIMEA’s DiploMe service will be presented, which is one of the first examples of the use of blockchain technology in the field of higher education and the recognition of qualifications.
